small clean space

small clean space is an interactive performance project/living installation that combines wearable LED technology and butoh-inspired movement with a simple biofeedback mechanism. The garment, body, and surrounding environment are revealed primarily through the light emitted from the beating of a human heart. Visitors are encouraged to enter and interact with all elements of the work in any way they wish.

The piece was installed in the Hult Center as part of the Eugene (sub)Urban Projections digital arts festival on February 21st, 2016. Its physical components included an immersive physical environment, audio score, and 2-hour durational performance. Vents in the ceiling amplified the smell of the materials used in the installation - dirt and live flowers - guiding the visitors into the space.
